doughnuts and diplomas

I wore this on my last day of classes--I wanted to look slightly adult, which apparently means donning black and white, but I couldn't help throwing in some color with my favorite necklace. I started the morning with Top Pot doughnuts delivered from my brother--a Seattle staple. I ended the night with a Long Island and going dancing with my best friends. Celebrating our accomplishments is a wonderful part of life. 
As of today at about 10:17 AM, I am done being a college student. Pending my official grades next week, I will then have an English degree with an emphasis on Creative Writing. In-sane. It also happens to be my mother's birthday, which means we spent the evening in a gorgeous restaurant drinking pomegranate mojitos and cucumber martinis, snacking on fancy cheeses, mussels, and spicy short ribs, and ending with a smoked chocolate torte. I feel a bit strange--the fact that I finished college is a bizarre thought that hasn't quite settled into my mind yet. But I'm adjusting. Here's to the calm before the storm!

blouse: Buffalo Exchange, jeans: Forever 21, necklace: Charlotte Russe
